After creating text inside the 3D invigorator, you can no longer mask that layer. Once you lay down a mask, everything is still visible. I thought that once i precomposed it, i'd be able to mask it, but that didn't work either. Is there a way to mask 3D Invigorator text?
Forgive me if this is obvious. When you precomposed did you choose the "Move All Attributes" option. By default when you precompose a single layer, the "Leave All Attributes" option is selected and this will leave the 3D Invigorator effect inside the main comp (not move it to the precomp).
